My wife came across Peaks n Swells on a family travel blog and we decided to give it a shot after "Soul Surfer" convinced our daughter that she was destined to be a surfer. Thanks to Hilary, Ryan, and their crew, the entire family soon found our stoke - so much so that we returned for a second visit less... More

I am not really sure where or how to begin with reviewing this unbelievable spot. From the first phone call with Hillary to the goodbye hugs we were absolutely blown away by the hospitality and care we received at Peaks n Swells. Hillary and Ryan put together such a fantastic week of surfing, coaching, food and activities for all of... More

Just returned from a 8 night stay at Peaks and Swells with our 3 boys ages 9, 11, 14. Not sure how to put into words what an amazing trip we had. Having active, athletic boys we knew they would have a blast surfing, what we didn't expect was the amazing 1-on -1 attention and kindness we would all receive... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Peaks and Swells Surf Camp this past March. We contacted Hillary at the last minute and she was very accommodating working with our schedule and helping us to arrange the details of our trip. Ryan picked us up at the airport at Tambor and drove us about 40 minutes to the surf camp. It... More

This is our second time to Peaks and Swells Surf Camp. If its even possible, this latest trip was better than our first. The coaches are vibrant, positive and helpful. The food is fabulous and abundant. The massage is amazing. The yoga is helpful. Usually I'm exhausted and a little cooked at the end of a trip. But after 9... More

If you are looking to try surfing for the first time, or are a long time surfer and want your family to join in- this is the place for you. My wife and I have only tried surfing a couple of times and our children age 6 and 9 have never been on a surfboard before. The owners and coaches... More
